Frames as Unique as You

We hand select every frame in our gallery!

If you are looking for eyeglasses in Calgary, let our experts find you that perfect frame.  There are generally 4 big frame releases per year corresponding to the big industry trade shows in Milan, Paris, New York and Las Vegas. We either shop the shows ourselves or get our vendors to refresh our gallery with the latest releases. This ensures we can offer you the latest styles well ahead of the mainstream fashion trends.

There is a lot that goes into the materials and manufacturing of quality eyewear, you can read more in our blog article here. We carry frames to suit every taste and budget and pride ourselves on our unique product lines that cannot be found at mass market merchandisers.

Measurements Matter

Better Vision through Technology

While online retailers make you take your own “PD” with a ruler, we use the latest high tech digital measurement devices. Simply put, more precise measurements mean better optics, and therefore better vision. This modern tech is similar to motion capture technology used in the movie industry to create realistic animations. By adapting this technology to measuring the way your eyes sit and move in your frame, we can give you quality optics and the clearest and most comfortable vision possible.

This tech, combined with the expert knowledge of  your optical consultant at Mission Eye Care will ensure you are looking and seeing to your fullest potential.

How to Choose the Right Frame

Our optical consultants at Mission Eye Care can help guide you with choosing frames that best suit your facial characteristics and convey the image you want the world to see. Here are 5 tips that we recommend when choosing a new pair of eyeglasses:
  1. Choose frames that contrast your face shape – The general rule is to choose the opposite of your face shape. For example, if you have a an angular or square face, then round frames are a good fit. If you have a round or oval face, consider going with a pair of rectangular frames.
  2. Choose temples based on face shape – If you have an oval face, choose temples that insert centrally on the frame front, with thicker design, decoration or contrasting color. For shorter faces, select thinner, lighter temples that insert higher up on the frame front. This will help balance the appearance of your face shape and size.
  3. Choose frames that center your eyes – If your eyes appear too close to the inner corner of the frames, it will make you look cross-eyed. If your eyes appear too far towards the outside corners of the frames, then it will make the glasses look too small. In addition, poor centration will make your lenses thick and heavy, especially in higher prescriptions.
  4. Choose frames that fit your nose – Because you are making an investment in something that sits on your face all day, you’ll want to make sure that they are comfortable! Selecting the proper nose bridge size and contour is critical in order to avoid glasses that constantly slip down your nose, leave red marks, or cause your eyelashes to touch the lenses. Plastic frames are especially important to try on as the bridge cannot be adjusted. This is where your optical consultant is invaluable in the frame selection process.
  5. Choose frame colour based on your skin tone – If your skin tone is warm, then choose frames in colours such as greens, browns, oranges and gold. If you have a cooler complexion, then purples, greys, blues, and silver are all good options. There is no substitute for trying on a frame to see how it works with your eye color too!
Use these five tips and the help of our highly skilled eyewear consultants to help you choose the right eyeglasses. Read on for this year’s eyewear fashion trends!

2021 Eyeglasses Trends

Scroll down to see a list of all our brands, but first, a few trends in eyeglass styles this season…

Retro Round

The nostalgia feeling of retro frames is not going anywhere this coming season. Though retro round glasses have been in trend since the past several years, the metal-rimmed round frames from the 80s and 90s are getting more attention this year. Update your round with novelty design elements like crystal embellishments or brightly colored lenses!

XXL Oversized

Another ode to the 70s, XXL square frames are continuing to make a statement this season. Enhance the look by investing in styles with luxurious neutral tones like rich browns and blacks for an elevated feel. An incredible variety of over-sized frames clearly shows that the pandemic has affected this year’s eyewear trends with large face-shielding virus particle blockers! Come see the new Victoria Beckham collection and the trend-setting huge frames iconic to the brand.

Geometric Shapes

Ditching those micro frames that were trending last year, the eyewear market has presented more wearable options with added funk. Geometric glasses like octagon, hexagon, square and even circles inside pentagons like these Andy Wolf frames pictured here. These are excellent to highlight or accentuate your facial features, especially if you have a round face. These shapes are perfect for adding some spice to your next zoom meeting!

Pantone Colors of the Year

In a year when we learned to expect the unexpected, Pantone went and switched it up on us by announcing not one but two colors of the year 2021. And they are not colors we would have guessed – GRAY and YELLOW. Ultimate gray is practical and rock solid, while illuminating is warming and optimistic. Combined they represent strength and positivity. We cannot wait to see more of this uplifting color combination in the months ahead.
